This recipe boasts a duo of zingy tea with a lime syrup in this refreshing twist on a classic thirst-quencher!

A refreshing glass of iced tea always does the trick for beating the heat. That’s why this Apricot Iced Tea recipe is perfect to make for the warm days ahead.

When all of the drink ingredients are combined, it’s ready to pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish (if desired). Whether for a casual afternoon or a gathering, this vibrant and flavorful iced tea is the ultimate chilled sip!

If you’re not a fan of apricot nectar, replace it with a peach or mango variety. Additionally, you can prep this drink ahead and let it chill covered in the fridge until it’s time to serve. If you’re looking to reduce the calories in this drink, opt for a low or zero-calorie sweetener for the syrup.
